it's certainly an interesting approach... can you add it to the wiki page?

for a script this is not doable (i don't think that i have an access to 
the font metrics... and it gets even worse when picture frames are 
included in the text frame...), but it may be a good approach, if and 
when the feature is added in the main code!

have fun
